Cyclone Trio is described as a head caving heavy jazz power unit of drums and saxophones, compromising Tony Irving a non-linear/free improvising drummer who founded the bands Ascension and Descension in the '90s, with drummer Tim Green and saxophonist Massimo Magee. The group was formed in Brisbane, Australia in 2013. Their music has been described as "bordering on cacophony in an unrelenting landscape of colliding percussion and towering saxophone." Tracks from their releases to date, and other projects from the three members, are featured on this show.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
